Fast Secure Contact Form
Attachment browse button not working in IE7 (6 posts)

    Funny, I've encountered the same problem with Fast Secure Contact Form as with Contact Form 7: In Internet Explorer 7, the "Browse" button for uploading an attachment is displayed as a small bar (about 8px wide), the text "Browse" is missing, and the button does not work.
    Does anyone know how to resolve this?

    I just disovered the problem also exists in IE8 (provided IEtester application properly renders IE7 and IE8).

    I'm wondering if it has to do with the styling. None of the styling options in the form affect the browse field and the button next to it. Maybe it's because the length is undefined?

    The bug also pops up using the "Inline Upload" plugin. I created a simple upload function with a PHP form myself, and it also has this bug. My guess is it has to do with the width (which is not set anywhere as far as I can find) being interpreted differently by the browsers.
    No plugin-bug then! Still, if anyone has an idea on how to resolve this, I would very much appreciate it!

    I cannot duplicate this problem.

    URL to page with the problem?

    In HTML, upload fields cannot be styled with CSS.
    They sometimes can be styled with some javascript tricks, but the form is not coded to do that sorry.
    Here is a site that explains the style issue with file fields.

    Hi Mike,
    sorry, I only have this running on a test environment currently, but I've come across it before with another site I built. Since it was my own, I decided to leave the attachment option out until I found a solution.
    Perhaps it's an issue only visible using IEtester, and not in the actual browsers, but I have no means of trying them. I'm going to check the quirksmode page and see if it helps me, will post results here.
